One thing that is significantly considered in our lives is marriage. There are some people who prefer to live alone. However, a great number of people think that marriage is a common thing in their lives. In the case of people who prefer getting marriage, they will have two different perspectives towards the happiness from living with their spouses as the condition changes.

Hamlet’s Blackberry is a comprehensive book that evaluates the technological revolution by examining the history of mankind as well as author William Powers’ personal experiences.

Noelle Albert wrote an essay called, “Multitasking: A Poor Study Habit”. Noelle is insisting to readers to stop multitasking while studying. Her main idea of this essay is to inform the reader of poor study habits, and why they should not tend to multiple things at once, while studying. The thesis is stated clearly in the last sentence in the first paragraph. “Multitasking between studies and recreational technology is not an effective way to study” (231) . Noelle gives reason and evidence to support her claims, throughout the entire essay. It will take you more time to switch from one task to another, than just following through. Firstly, supporting her main idea with a finding from professor David Meyer, at the University of Michigan, found that when you switch to a new task, parts of the brain that are no longer being used “start shutting things down-like neural

Nowadays, technology devices become plays an important role in our daily lives, especially in adolescents’ categories. While there is a very clear argument for how the technology is effected on us and causing social isolation as we know, but in another way is also the argument that these technologies are helping us to become more social in our society. This is very probably because we have a good and perfect ability to communicate with each other. Despite long distances. We all know that the goal of technology is to make our lives easier and more efficient. I think that every future may bring technology, it will help us, but the same time, mobile phones may bring us some bad things that will leave a bad fingerprint in our societies
Even though banning cell phones reduce distractions in the classroom, phones should be allowed in the classroom, but restricted to school work because it offers more learning opportunities and gets kids excited about learning.

A good teacher should know how to engage students in learning activities and be able to respond to diverse students needs in the classroom. The classroom observations I have seen these past week has shown me examples of good teachers. In all the classes I observed the students sat quietly and were always ready to raise their hands and answer questions. In my kindergarten class all the students were really into their assignments and wanted approval of their work from their teacher. A good way I saw a teacher trying to keep her students engaged was giving them a time limit for how long they had to do the assignment before they had to present their results or move on to the next activity.
In recent decades, urban cities turned to become an attractive place for people from Different cultures to live in. This movement from different cultures to urban areas caused a significant change and development to urban cities and made it an extrovert area for different backgrounds.

The term “safe space”, a supposed haven where students of minority and marginalization can feel free to express their ideas and be themselves has started a movement across college campuses nationwide. The newfangled movement is driven largely by students who wish to scrub campuses clean of offensive or discomforting topics. Safe spaces emerged during the post-Civil Rights era where women, LGBTQ, and racial minorities grew in presence on campuses; however, today they serve as refuges for like-minded people who don’t feel the need to explain or defend their personal beliefs. Recently, the safe space debate has taken a controversial turn: arguments and cases have been created over whether safe spaces provide a supportive environment or cultivate
